I think it depends on the size of the cichlids relative to the neon tetra's

Proper answer - not enuf data, give cichlid species.

When I was in the fish store (LFS) business from 1976 to 1986 one of
my favorite memories was of a fellow who came in one day and saw that
we had in stock some jumbo Cardinal Tetras. He asked me to bag up a
half dozen of them. I cautioned him that they might not be a good mix
with his very large discus. A couple of weeks later when he was next
in the store I asked him how the cardinals and the discus had gotten
along. He replied cheerily that the discus loved them!

He was our favorite kind of customer. Knew he was taking a chance and
didn't whine and moan when it didn't work out.

If you don't mind my taking the opportunity to toot our own horn.
Groton is a Navy town, home of the U.S. submarine base. On a number
of occassions we had new customers come in and tell us that other navy
men, as far away as Hawaii, had told them that when they got
transferred to Groton to be sure to check us out. We must have been
doing something right.

I had a nice earth eater display once with lots of tetra.
I'm sure I inspired many a person to try it with their oscars by mistake.

Depends on the size of the cichlids, but I would say that you would need
a lot more in order to keep them properly fed.
